Bino Phillips is one of the best defenders in all Dallas. He is known for defending disreputable characters and fighting for justice - even against high political interests if necessary. For the honest but politically unpopular federal judge Emmett Burns, Bino Phillips is the last hope. Burns is about to be indicted on trumped-up charges, and his gorgeous but reckless daughter, Ann, has gotten into some trouble of her own.

How can the characters in this year's True Detective be worse? Ferrill is asexual, drunk, corrupt, a child abuser and worse!
Bino's second adventure was even better than the first. It features quick witted dialogue, a remarkable cast of characters and a great legal mystery. This story revolves around a federal judge who finds himself under indictment. His beautiful adult daughter has a gambling addiction that only complicates the judge's position. He hires Bino to represent him, but neither he or Bino fully understands how much trouble is at hand.
There's a band of misfits Bino surrounds himself with, none bigger than himself. His ex wife is married to the mob, his Investigator is a bookie, his secretary a reformed junkie. He has real enemies as a defense attorney, primarily the US Attorney and FBI. The upper crust attorneys snub him socially. But underestimateing Bino Phillips is a big mistake.
Once again Joe Bennett is superb. This is an easy 5 star listen!
